Speedy Q: Speed Networking from OutBritain & Series Q
From our conversations from Series Q attendees, we know that most people really value the new connections they make during our evening events. Indeed, one member told us: “I’ve never left a Series Q event without winning a piece of new business”
We want to facilitate more of these connections, so Speedy Q will be our first ever speed networking evening. If that thought fills you with terror – worry not! – we’ll kick off the evening with a short intro on how best to make introductions and to follow up with new connections. Welcome drinks will be provided, and we’ll follow the speed networking with informal drinks.
- 6:30pm – Arrival and welcome drink (no earlier than this please)
- 7:00pm – Welcome remarks
- 7:10pm – Activity (meet some new – and old – contacts!)
- 7:45pm to late – Drinks and tunes
Please note there will be no complimentary food, so be sure to have a bite before you arrive!
